The Youth Hostel Association has deferred the closure of three hostels as a campaign gains ground to raise £1.2 million to save them. The association, which was devastated by the foot-and-mouth outbreak last year, has been forced to make cuts after it lost £5 million in anticipated income. However, the Aysgarth 67-bed hostel on the Yorkshire Dales could stay open if £500,000 is raised by the end of February. The YHA is attempting to raise public funds through European and single regeneration budget funds. The association's board has also deferred the sale and closure of Dufton and Holmbury.
